Brian Connelly recently earned his board certification in Civil Trial Law from The Florida Bar. Mr. Connelly has been with GCF since 2000 and focuses his practice in the areas of personal injury, wrongful death, product liability and medical malpractice. Established in 1982 by the Florida Supreme Court, board certification helps consumers identify specialists in many different areas of the law. Board certification recognizes attorneys’ special knowledge, skills and proficiency in various areas of law and professionalism and ethics in practice.
Mr. Connelly joins GCF attorneys Eugene O’Neill, Troy Hafner, David Carter and Anthony Guettler who are all board certified in their areas of practice. Mr. O’Neill is triple board certified in Civil Trial, Business Litigation and Construction Law. Mr. Hafner and Mr. Guettler are board certified in Wills, Trusts and Estates. Like Mr. Connelly, Mr. Carter is board certified in Civil Trial Law. Only 7% of eligible Florida Bar members are board certified in one or more of the 24 certification fields. Board certification is the highest level of evaluation by The Florida Bar of the competency and experience of attorneys in their area of practice. Such an honorable certification was only possible through Mr. Connelly’s skill, knowledge and experience.
